I think there is a reasonable chance it climbs close to $24 this year. Earnings look strong and appear just to be getting started so 2014 and 2015 are looking to be good bets as winners. My guess is $20 by June and quite possibly sooner.
Multiple top rated forecasters, even those who best predicted 2013 SLV's trading range, think SLV could go as low as $12 this year. $17 is most likely average 2014 price so pointless to buy IMO until we see at minimum $16 and for me sub $15 which is coming.
